CONDITIONS OF SALE 


1. Any bid which is merely a nominal or fractional advance 
may be rejected by the auctioneer, if, in his judgment, such bid 
would be likely to alfect the sale injuriously. 

2. The highest bidder shall be the buyer, and if any dispute 
arise between two or more bidders, the auctioneer shall either de- 
cide the same or put up for re-sale the lot so in dispute. 

3- Payment shall be made of all or such part of the purchase 
money as may be required, and the names and addresses of the 
purchasers shall be given immediately on the sale of every lot, in 
default of which the lot so purchased shall be immediately put up 
again and re-sold. 

Payment of that part of the purchase money not made at the 
time of sale shall be made within ten days thereafter, in default of 
which the undersigned may either continue to hold the lots at the 
risk of the purchaser and take such action as may be necessary 
for the enforcement of the sale, or may at public or private sale, 
and without other than this notice, re-sell the lots for the benefit 
of such purchaser, and the deficiency (if any) arising from such 
re-sale shall be a charge against such purchaser. 

4. Delivery of any purchase will be made only upon pay- 
ment of the total amount due for all purchases at the sale. 

Deliveries will be made on sales days between the hours of 9 
A. M. and 1 P. M., and on other days — except holidays — be- 
tween the hours of 9 A. M. and 5 P. M. 

Delivery of any purchase will be made only at the American 
Art Galleries, or other place of sale, as the case may be, and 
only on presenting the bill of purchase. 

Delivery may be made, at the discretion of the Association, 
of any purchase during the session of the sale at which it was sold. 

5. Shipping, boxing or wrapping of purchases is a business 
in which the Association is in no wise engaged, and will not be 
performed by the Association for purchasers. The Association 
will, however, afford to purchasers every facility for employing at 
current and reasonable rates carriers and packers; doing so, how- 
ever, without any assumption of responsibility on its part for the 
acts and charges of the parties engaged for such service. 

6. Storage of any purchase shall be at the sole risk of the 
purchaser. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, 
and thereafter, while the Association will exercise due caution in 
caring for and delivering such purchase, it will not hold itself 
responsible if such purchase be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. 


Storage charges will be made upon all purchases not removed 
within ten days from the date of the sale thereof. 

7. Guarantee is not made either by the owner or the Asso- 
ciation of the correctness of the description, genuineness or au- 
thenticity of any lot, and no sale will be set aside on account of 
any incorrectness, error of cataloguing, or any imperfection not 
noted. Every lot is on public exhibition one or more days prior 
to its sale, after which it is sold “as is” and without recourse. 

The Association exercises great care to catalogue every lot 
correctly, and will give consideration to the opinion of any trust- 
worthy expert to the effect that any lot has been incorrectly 
catalogued, and, in its judgment, may either sell the lot as cata- 
logued or make mention of the opinion of such expert, who thereby 
would become responsible for such damage as might result were 
his opinion without proper foundation. 

SPECIAL NOTICE 

Buying or bidding by the Association for responsible parties 
on orders transmitted to it by mail, telegraph or telephone, will 
be faithfully attended to without charge or commission. Any 
purchase so made will be subject to the above Conditions of Sale, 
which cannot in any manner be modified. The Association, how- 
ever, in the event of making a purchase of a lot consisting of 
one or more books for a purchaser who has not, through himself 
or his agent, been present at the exhibition or sale, will permit 
such lot to be returned within ten days from the date of sale, 
and the purchase money will be returned, if the lot in any 
material manner differs from its catalogue description. 

Orders for execution by the Association should be written 
and given with such plainness as to leave no room for misunder- 
standing. Not only should the lot number be given, but also the 
title, and bids should be stated to be so much for the lot, and 
when the lot consists of one or more volumes of books or objects 
of art, the bid per volume or piece should also be stated. If the 
one transmitting the order is unknown to the Association, a de- 
posit should be sent or reference submitted. Shipping directions 
should also be given. 

Priced copies of the catalogue of any sale, or any session 
thereof, will be furnished by the Association at a reasonable 
charge.

RURAL LANDSCAPE 


(Panel) 

Height, 5 inches; length, 7 i 



In a land of rolling hills and sunny green valleys a 
humble farm center is seen on a lazy late-summer day, 
when the trees have begun to drop some of their leaves, 
grass is yellow, and other leaves are turning brown. 
In the middle distance, nestling in a broad hollow, is a 
gray cottage with brown thatch roof, and near it are 
low barns and outbuildings whose ancient thatch is 
mingled with green mossy growths. On a knoll in the 
foreground, in the shelter of two venerable oaks, a 
country maid in a blue skirt and red waist is milking 
a white cow, while a dun cow and a white cow with 
black head and spots lie lazily by on the carpet of 
leaves. 

On the back, under seal, is the following writing: 

“This picture is by Dearman, an English artist of high repute. 
It is a beautiful little picture, and was presented to me by Mr. 
L. Warrington Gillet, Aug. 30, 1845.

Highlands rise boldly on either side of a broad valley 
which winds irregularly between them. In the distance 
the face of those on the far side is obscure, in shadow, 
while the sunlight, striking down forward of them, il- 
luminates a silvery-gray river which threads the valley, 
its distant surface seen through a light haze. The 
beholder looks from a high and narrow foreground, 
where trees and rocks show autumn hues; the sky afar 
also reveals colors in its streaks of cloud.

A painting of still life. A brown table or bench stands 
in the light in a room with dark walls. On it are 
placed in careless confusion a half dozen or more ob- 
jects of different character and varying surfaces. A 
tall gray stone beer pitcher or wine jug, painted in 
blue, stands between some biscuit and a well-browned 
meerschaum pipe, behind which a blue open box con- 
tains pipe-tobacco, and nearby are large leather-bound 
books, and a candle in a silver or pewter stick.

A brown-sandy road with red-sandy outcroppings in 
its bed and banks runs between low banks at right and 
left which have been cut into to reduce its grade as it 
comes up over a low hill. At the top of the bank on 
the left a fence is glimpsed between tall trees that line 
the roadside. Looking down the road, there is revealed 
in the middle distance a cluster of white cottages with 
red chimneys and thatched roofs, among tall green trees, 
and in the distance a range of high hills rises against 
the horizon. Coming up the incline of the road is a 
laden farm wagon drawn by two horses.

The point of view is taken on the Riva degli Schiavoni, 
looking up across the Molo, past the statue-surmounted 
columns of St. Theodore and the Winged Lion of St. 
Mark to the Old Library and the Royal Palace, with 
many people in brightly-colored apparel seen on the 
sidewalks. On the right is the long facade of the 
Ducal Palace, with a corner of the Prigioni coming into 
the picture nearer by ; and across the blue-green Grand 
Canal on the left are seen the Salute and the Dogana, 
with a red-hulled iron steamer anchored in the canal.

A flat plain of the artist’s favorite Barbizon country 
is represented, bordered on the left by thick trees. Far 


in the distance low blue hills appear along the horizon, 


under a sky whose multitudinous gray and white clouds 
are tinted in mauve and yellow at a subdued sunset’s ap- 
proach. Over the level green meadow along the trees a 
flock of sheep, approaching, have reached the fore- 
ground. A shepherdess accompanies them ; her dog, 
which has run ahead, has stopped and turned to see that 
all is well.

A handsome game rooster ana eight various hens are 
seen about a straw pile in a barnyard. The barn, with 
gray, brown and green boards, is in the background, 
with a thickly-branching tree beside it, and both throw 
shadows forward which screen a part of the straw pile 
but leave parts of it in the sun ; and a distant sunny 
field is visible on the right. The rooster is lying down, 
as are some of the hens, while others strut about or 
peck in the straw. They are white and black, yellow, 
brown and gray.

SKATING IN HOLLAND 

(Panel) 

vv Height, 8 inches; length, 11 todies 

A river, broad and shallow, has frozen over, and its 
glistening surface, a cold grayish-blue in the crisp 
winter air, reflects the shadows of numerous skaters and 
others who are en j oying themselves late in the day, when 
horizon clouds are purpling. The river extends straight 
before the eye, trending somewhat to the left. On the 
right are low Dutch houses with steep gable roofs, and 
near them a tent has been set up on the ice, while 
farther down may be seen the spires and taller build- 
ings of a town, and on the opposite side of the river 
a windmill rises against the western horizon, the air 
in the distance lightly clouding in a mist. Skaters are 
moving up and down the ice-field, a man is pushing a 
large sleigh containing two women, and another man ap- 
proaches them who has shot a duck which swings over 
his shoulder.

A landscape at the forest’s edge, the foreground in 
shadow, a bright green field seen in the sunshine in the 
distance. In the sheltered foreground a pool is cradled 
in green grasses and the brown surface growths of a 
woodland purlieus, and its quiet water reflects a light 
gray summer sky which preserves only suggestions of 
the blue. On the right, tall and ancient trees of Fon- 
tainebleau are clustered, while on the left detached trees 
partly screen the great Barbizon plain country beyond. 
Seated on the ground near the pond are two figures, in 
red, blue and white.

Stable buildings or shelters with thatch or

a yellow-green or greenish-yellow in the sunshine of a 
warm summer day, under a bright blue sky with mounds 
of gray-blue and white cumuli. No distance save the 
skv is seen, except for a glimpse between a horse’s nose 
and a building, the yard being occupied by five horses 
— bay, dark chestnut, brown and dapple-grays— while 
in the foreground are black and red pigs and some 
chickens, among them a game rooster and hen.

a straight line of short gray side-whiskers. His face 
is seamed and the heavy lower lip sags. He is facing 
the left in a strong light and has pushed his glasses 
up to his forehead while he reads intently a manuscript 
which he holds well up. His coat is black and he wears

A MAN of strong features and large, his skin wrinkled 
with years, is seen at half-length in the black habit of 
a monk, against a brown background. He wears a 
skull-cap, from which his thatch of tousled black hair 
projects before his large ears and over his forehead, and 
in one hand he holds a book — with a finger between the 
leaves. In the other hand is a glass of golden wine, 
partly emptied, and the clerical connoisseur’s lips are 
drawn in as he savors the product of the vineyard 
judicially, looking thoughtfully at the spectator the 
while.

Dense is the foliage of midsummer in the great 
and bright the sunshine of a fair and breezy day. The 
blue sky is full of light, active clouds, still for the 
most part in feathery form, and its blue and its white 
are reflected in a winding stream which is seen in sun- 
shine in the middle distance through a broad oval open- 
ing between trees of the foreground. Here, in the 
grateful shade, a girl is seated on the grass, reading 
or sewing. Out in the sunlight the trees are thick 
along the stream, their reflections mingling with those 
of the clouds.

The heavy smoke of battle envelops the picture. Where 
it lightens at left and center, cavalrymen are seen 
rushing toward the right on white and black horses, 
their sabers raised. The horses flounder among en- 
cumbrances on the ground; and in the right foreground, 
enshrouded in the smoke, a defending soldier thrusts a 
bayonet towards two oncoming riders, as he stands 
behind the heavy wheel of a disabled cannon.

middle distance toward the left is an old gray and 
brown mill, and in front of it rushes the mill-stream, 
tumbling in white foam in its rocky bed down the incline 
of the foreground. Through an opening between the 
trees on the right is glimpsed a figure in a boat, on the 
quiet water of the mill-pond above the dam.

The sky is a brilliant azure on a bright day of mil

ish vapor aloft, while banks of light cumuli lie along 
the horizon. In front of distant broad hills are rich 
meadows, flat and wide-spreading and supporting 
numerous trees of full foliage. A broad brook winds 
through the meadows, and in the foreground a white 
and a red cow are standing in it, one drinking. Beyond 
them a huge oak with quadruple trunk spreads its great 
branches against the sky and furnishes shade for more 
cows which have gathered there.

Crippled beggars sit on the floor, and the sunshine 
illuminates parts of the great spaces, leaving other

fabric that the artist has found his greatest attrac-

A farmer is taking his daughter to the railway station, 
using his light box wagon. They have just pulled out 
of the barn which stands on the right at the top of a 
rise, and are coming directly forward in the farm road, 
a dog running beside the wagon and chickens scattering 
out of the way. Near a split-rail fence a little girl in 
sunbonnet is standing beside a red and white calf, and 
men are seen working in a field. The farmer leans 
toward the young woman, who listens to him. She wears 
a straw hat trimmed with red and a light red shawl, 
and carries an open blue parasol. It is a sunny day

It is getting toward sunset and the sky is streaked with 
red and yellow, lavender and mauve and pink, and gray, 
many of its tones being repeated in a small pond in the 
foreground. On the left a rambling English farmhouse 
with thatch roofs appears in many soft colors, before

while a dog has turned and is chasing a duck over the 
land, other ducks appearing in the pond. Around are 
rolling hills and wild fields.

A farmer whose clothing shows red, gregp, brown and 
blue, is about to push open the heavy door of a gray- 
plastered stable, which has a thick and rambling roof of 
brown thatch. His brown and black horse, released 
from the wagon, has followed him and looks expectantly 
for the opening of the door, as does a shaggy-haired 
dog which has also come up. Near a barrel at the 
corner, chickens are pecking at a sheaf of straw. In 
the distance are green and yellow flat fields, under a 
sky of clear blue with rolling masses of delicate gray 
cumuli.

A brook issuing from the middle distance is white where

The shaggy animal stands athwart the view, apparently 
having just come to a stop in a leisurely walk, his 
forefeet planted side by side and one hind foot in 
advance of its mate. His bristling thick coat is dark 
brown streaked with black, his eye looks for the moment 
sleepy rather than vicious, and the great snout and 
massive head contrast curiously with the ragged and 
stumpy tail. He stands in green grass which appears 
moist as after a rain, and he is studied near by, so 
the green turf forms also the background.

THE JUNIATA RIVER NEAR

Inness in his earlier style is seen in this canvas, an 
American landscape portrait, without the brilliant 
coloring of his later works and with a remarkable at- 
mosphere. The river, appearing in the right fore- 
ground, is colored there with reflections of green and 
brown trees on its bank, and emerging into the sunlight 
turns in the middle distance and winds to the right 
about the point which sustains them, disappearing there 
from view. On its left bank in the foreground a large 
birch tree with bifurcated trunk rises out of the picture, 
leaning over the water, and just beyond it a man in 
shirtsleeves stands against a rail fence watching some 
cows. Two of them, a white and a black one, are over 
their knees in the stream, and a red cow is feeding in 
the juicy grass of its gently sloping bank. In the 
distance are sunny meadows and part of a village, seen 
against more distant hazy mountains.

Seated on low three-legged stools, and overturned tubs, 
in an inn yard, are three aged cronies drinking wine 
and smoking. One in red has his back to the observer, 
one in yellow faces him, and a third has turned to 
pass his glass to a robust serving-maid in old-rose, 
white and black, who comes with a pitcher to replenish 
it. A fourth aged man with a cane is coming through 
a doorway. The light is subdued, and the tone of the

permeated with olive.

in a strong light. She wears a loose gray jacket whose 
turned-back cuffs reveal a tan lining, and a broad

SKATING IN HOLLAND 

(Panel) 

Height, 15% inches; length, 20% 

All about a substantial red-brick cottage, partly gray- 
plastered and with thatched roof, now somewhat 
whitened with snow, the water has frozen in streams 
and over fields — and the countryside is out on skates. 
Men, women and children, warmly wrapped, are en- 
joying themselves, and two horses have been brought to 
the meeting-place. Around the house leafless trees rise 
above the roofs, and at the right is the inevitable wind- 
mill. The sky is gray and cold, as the day fades to 
the gloaming, and far down at the horizon there lingers 
a faint, pinkish suggestion of departed sunset.

the delicate lines of the Gothic ornamentation of the 
cathedral spire. Across the way an important polyfoil 
building with a tall round tower is seen, and the square 
is full of people hurrying in efforts to rescue goods or 
with loot, while several lie dead; and down near the 
fire, men are shooting at each other and at a departing

kjyi- 

A brown-skinned Spaniard, smooth-shaven and 
wrinkled — though with no great burden of years — with 
hardy breast exposed by his loosened drab-white blouse, 
seen at three-quarter length, faces the spectator and 
offers for barter his produce of succulent melons. One, 
cut, he holds in his left arm, with the excised tranche 
upraised in his extended right hand to tempt the thirsty 
and anhungered, its yellow pulp and seeds juicily ex- 
posed. To right and left of him are other melons, 
with corrugated surface undisturbed, their ripe yellow 
skins tinged in a pale olive tone. He wears a dull-red 
and loose leather belt, and a pliant hat of plaited straw 
rakishly poised.

Partly in the sunlight and partly in the shade of trees, an 


assemblage of birds and chickens is depicted. A crested, 


proud and noisy white hen is seated in the foreground, 
small chicks perched on her back, nestling under her 
wing, and pecking on the ground around her. Beyond 
her are other fowl of varying colors. On the left, on 
the ground and in the air, are game and other birds 
of brilliant plumage, and in a distant landscape classic 
buildings are seen. In a green-blue sky masses of 
white clouds are tinged in warm sunset tones.

BIRD’S-EYE VIEW IN HOLLAND 




Ancient Holland in epitome is displayed on a broad 
and high canvas, in sunshine and shadow, land and sea. 
On a stream in the foreground are small boats of sail 
and man power with various people in them. Two swans 
are swimming near by and people look on from the 
shore. At right and left on higher planes, venerable 
woods of bushy trees shadow the land, and people are 
walking or resting; one person, approaching, carries 
a headload. In the middle distance in a valley is a 
city of low, gabled buildings, with others with high 
towers and arches, and on a hill is a castle, while on 
a river there are more sailing boats ; and the lowlands 
beyond reveal windmills and more settlements. Beyond 
all is the distant sea, under a blue sky varied by many 
light gray and dark clouds.

NAVAL PARADE 

RE FORE AMSTERDAM 

/ / £j Height, 36% inches; length, iY inches 

In a choppy sea a single-masted gunboat with a full 
complement of Hollanders is coming on in the right 
foreground, a huge lee-board Hopping on the weather 
side and a small-boat trailing. The sunlight strikes 
her gray-white and orange canvas and illumines her 
officers and crew. Beyond her in cloud-shadows are 
large men-o’-war with sails full and flags and pennants 
streaming. The sky is filled with rolling masses of dark 
clouds with light edges ; in the left foreground is a 
round harbor-buoy; and far off, beyond careening 
smaller sailboats, is the low coastline of the land of 
windmills and dikes.

PORTRAIT GROUP— THE STOIC AND 
THE EPICURE ( Dividing the World ) 


Height, 44 -y g inches; wid‘ u 



i m 


Two robust men, painted with characteristic vigor 
and warm color, are depicted at three-quarter length 
against a dark background of neutral brownish tone, 
a globe before them. One, on the right, his figure three- 
quarters to the left but his head turned to face front, 
is an old man bald on the crown but with plenty of 
hair back of the temples and a full gray beard. He is 
nude to the waist, a cloak thrown over one shoulder, 
and rests his head on his right hand, chin against chest, 
in an attitude of philosophic and analytical contem- 
plative thought. Leaning on his right shoulder and 
talking earnestly to him is a vigorous man of the world, 
with gray tousled hair and ruddy complexion, wearing 
rich robes of green-blue, brown and golden yellow. 
With one hand on the elder’s shoulder, he extends the 
other hand in front of him, in emphasis of declamation ; 
and he smiles, with a smile of confidence and conviction 
that life as he lives it is good. 

A similar painting is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New 
York, the older man being quite the same, and the globe being 
utilized ; the other man appears in different aspect . Its title 
is {( The Philosophers” ; catalogue number, 43.

STILL LIFE AND LANDSCAPE 


j Height, 58 inches /"width, 51 inches 

A painting big and comprehensive, 1 witTi a wealth; of 
color, rich but subdued, a brilliant display of technic, 
and enriched with imaginative and romantic elements. 
In the foreground a low stone parapet crosses the can- 
vas, surmounted at the left by a huge sculptured 
column. On the ledges of this, white and red grapes 
in large bunches are grouped with peaches and purple 
and golden plums, an oak branch with green and 
partly-dried leaves crossing over the group. At the end 
of the branch a white-breasted red squirrel on the para- 
pet is attacking it for acorns. On the ground or ter- 
race below is a profusion of cut flowers and leaves, a 
butterfly fluttering over them, which has caught the 
attention of a small curly-haired white dog standing 
near; and at one side is a ripe cantaloupe, from which 
a wedge has been cut. Beyond the parapet is a basin 
or canal in a noble garden, surrounded by buildings of 
classical architecture amongst which tall Italian cypress 
trees are seen. On the water there are people in pleas- 
ure boats, and also white swans ; and other persons are 
standing in a portico at the water’s edge.

DOGS ATTACKING A STAG 


»», Height, 56 inches; length^Ttjj inches 

The pack — eight dogs visible — have been pursuing a 
stag across a rolling country of grassy meadows and 
tall, thick trees, running to the left, and in the fore- 
ground have overtaken and pounced upon him. He has 
caught one dog on his antlers and tossed it over his 
head, and one dog which has fallen on its back under 
him has seized his leg in its teeth. Just as he has 
cleared his horn from the tossed dog one of the others, 
leaping to his shoulder, has bitten his ear and holds on, 
while others attack from front and rear and more are 
seen coming up at full run. 

“A glorious picture in perfect preservation and untouched by a 
strange hand. 

“No mere words can describe the magnificent vitality of this 
picture, the expressiveness and sentiment and the impeccable 
execution of which must rank it among the masterpieces of the 
artist. It is immeasurably superior to the fine Snyders in the 
Durcal Collection, which is now owned in Boston.” — The late 
Alfred Trumble, in The Collector. 

From the collection of the King of Nagles and of Spain, Joseph 
Bonaparte. Formerly hung in the National Gallery, Madrid.

SNOW IN THE NORSE MOUNTAINS 


• - Height, 49 inches ' length, 68 inches 

(JUm 

W inter is come in tlie Northland but sleighs are not 
out nor is water frozen. Snow whitens the tall moun- 
tains which on the right loom high in the background, 
their peaks and slopes lessening and receding toward 
the left, and is sifted in a powder-like coating over tall 
evergreens and on the windward side of trees which have 
long since shed their leaves. Large buildings are 
perched high on the slopes. In the foreground is a 
humble home and inn, hollowed out in the face of a 
sheer cliff and fronted with a wooden lean-to. Here are 
seen some peasant maids and children, a man playing a 
bagpipe, and another man on horseback drinking. A 
caleche and two persons walking are proceeding up a 
road, and at the side of the inn cattle and sheep are 
drinking at a pool in a mountain stream.

“THE KING IS DEAD—

f $-A tL 

Height, 72 inches; width, 60 indies yi/. yyi^c 

One of the artist’s favorite pictures, asliroa dly humor- 
ous in subject as serious in painting. In the central 
foreground is the stout brown stump of a blasted tree, 
with a few small branches still sustaining a leaf-stem 
here and there, and in the background are green fields 
and many flourishing trees. Around the stump and 
perched on its scraggly branches are birds of the 
ground and birds of the air, all with beaks open, sing- 
ing or chattering to the top of their bent. Yellow- 
breasts and red-breasts, parrots and peacocks, a big 
white rooster and a little speckled hen, a gobbler and 
a crow, and small chickens two of which strut in fight- 
ing spirit and glare at each other, all share in the re- 
joicing; while, perched on a parchment proclamation 
spiked at the top of the stump, an owl oversees the 
proceedings.
